Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy told the team's website Tuesday, Aug. 6, that he believes he's still 'the guy' and suggested he has had that opinion reinforced by the coaching staff.
Huddle Up: McCoy will almost certainly be the Week 1 starter, but the main question is whether or not he will lead a committee right away or be given a chance to prove he can still be a workhorse. The team's offseason additions of Frank Gore and Devin Singletary figure to make the former a reality sooner than later. As such, McCoy needs to be viewed as a low-end flex option.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (personal) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 1, after missing the previous session.
Huddle Up: McCoy's best years are behind him, and there have been rumors that he could be moved this season. He should lead the Buffalo backfield if he sticks around, but with veteran Frank Gore and rookie Devin Singletary also in the mix, McCoy looks like a low-upside flex option.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy expects to maintain a large role in the offense in his age-31 season in 2019. 'I'm a type of guy, I thrive off of having a big name. So when guys come to my team, they're curious to see, 'How is LeSean McCoy? Is he still a good player?' I mean, I'm a dominant player. I think that speaks for itself. But I'll be in the same role as last year. And I look forward to putting some numbers up and bouncing back from that last season,' McCoy said Tuesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: McCoy totaled just 752 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns last season. Both numbers were career worsts as he played in 14 games but made just 13 starts. He remains No. 1 on the Bills' depth chart, but he'll be competing against veteran RB Frank Gore and third-round rookie Devin Singletary. He's fallen into RB4 territory but could prove to be a steal at a mid-round price.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is still the team's starting running back, according to comments made by GM Brandon Beane following the third-round selection of RB RB Devin Singletary. Beane lauded Singletary's instincts and vision, and did mention age at the position, a reference to McCoy, who turns 31 during the offseason.
Huddle Up: It's commonplace for GMs to back their current starter, but you have to believe the Bills are gonna take a long look at McCoy in the wake of this selection given his age, mileage and cap figure. If he remains the starter in Buffalo, McCoy could hold RB3 value.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy believes he and the Bills will bounce back after a personally and collectively trying season. McCoy had his worst season as a professional football player, he was the subject of accusation in an alleged domestic incident and he was benched in Week 16.
Huddle Up: What's more is that McCoy will turn 31 years old this offseason and is over the hill in running back years. He should still be the main guy in Buffalo's backfield, but he is far from being the RB1 conversation.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will return to the Bills for the final year of his contract in 2019, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: McCoy is coming off the worst year of his career and will be turning 31 years old this offseason. The talent and playmaking ability are still there, though. Combined with his past success, it will be difficult to pass on him as a PPR RB2 in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy ran 10 times for 26 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two grabs for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Shady ended up with 514 rushing yards and three touchdowns across 14 games and he had 34 grabs for 238 yards and no scores. McCoy was a perennial first-round fantasy pick for many years, but at 30 he is on the downside of his career and should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy player heading into 2019.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is viewed as an important piece of the offense for 2019, according to head coach Sean McDermott, and McDermott said he feels McCoy has 'bought in' with the Bills for next season.
Huddle Up: McCoy is finishing up the worst year of his career, and while injuries have played a part, age isn't on his side. After entering this season as a borderline RB1, McCoy's stock has plummeted. He will likely be a flex option, at best, in 2019.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is 'ready to go' in Week 16, head coach Sean McDermott said Friday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: McCoy, who missed Week 15, is most definitely needed given the Bills' running-back health situation and should be considered a low-end flex consideration.
